So i might be blind but I'm surprised there hasn't been a gun control/Tuscon shooting topic since the whole incident. I've been having arguments with a friend of mind over gun control, and to me, i don't see how you can argue against gun control - that its only common sense to have strict control over such dangerous tools. My friend was saying that if the government did tighten their control over guns, it would be "un-American as it goes against the constitutional rights" which to me sounds like a very red-neck gun toting republican thing to say (yeah i know im stereotyping, but she is republican). What i cant wrap my head around is that she's such a peaceful loving person, who in her words "can never imagine ever being able to kill a human because its so... inhumane". But yet... guns can't be taken away from her even though she's never shot a gun and doesn't want to. I think its a whole paranoia thing that is infectious with Americans (from my one semester being here so far that i can tell). From what i can tell, you guys seem to really distrust your government, and for good reasons at time. But seriously, i know not everyone is like this, but when does common sense and reasoning somehow just get thrown out of the window? Thoughts?
